look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: An aged looking ruby red that appears to have light carbonation, a single finger head presented but vanished quickly. No noticeable lacing has decent translucence. Looks almost flat.
S: Smells sweet and malty, there is a spiciness that looms in the nose that is somewhat subtle. Caramel sweetness is soft and a bit boozy with fruity esters that add complexity making its direct identity hard to discern. Nose reminds me of the inside of a chocolate covered Maraschino cherry.
T: Sweet syrupy cherry character that is slightly boozy and a little warming. Not pinpointing a strong hop/bitterness. Velvet cherry is forward but followed by a moderately bold, but pleasant almonds and apricots evocative of amaretto liqueur. A bit of bready chocolate malt, maybe even pumpernickel.
M: Mellow and smooth on the tongue with a medium body and very little noticeable carbonation. Warm on the tongue with a mildly roasty and toffee aftertaste that lingers but remains pleasant.
O: Not too much experience with doublebocks, kind of reminds me of Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Pretty sweet and warming, different from the styles I have been recently indulging. Tröegs seems like it has some quality offerings and I’m exited to explore further.
I plan on going on a bock/doublebock tare this spring, I will return to the Troegenator.

3.78/5 rDev -3.8%

Pours a decent beige head that quickly fades to a thin remnant. Brew is a brilliant copper-caramel color, dark but very clear.
Tons of toffee and caramel in the aroma, plus dark fruits: figs and grapes.
Flavor follows the nose: sweet raisins and grapes, chewy bready malts, tons of caramel and brown sugar. A bit of rum raisin meets fruitcake.
Long, long sticky finish from a light but creamy body. Extremely easy drinking, with no hint of the high ABV, and little sting.
Very tasty dopplebock.
